Diversity Education

We present regular diversity and inclusion training opportunities that are available to faculty, staff and students through a number of offices across our campus.

Implicit Bias Search Committee Training

Beginning in the fall of 2017, all search committee members, including search chairs will be required to attend this training. This workshop will discuss how to promote diversity and manage implicit bias in faculty searches. We will also address the search process, the roles of the Search Chair and the Committee, as well as other issues that can affect the fairness of a search.
